National Lockdown from Tuesday 5th January 2021
From this (5th Jan) morning, you must once again stay home:
- You may only leave home for limited reasons permitted in law, such as to shop for essentials.
- You should work from home unless you absolutely cannot.
- If you are clinically extremely vulnerable, we are advising you to begin shielding again.
Primary schools, secondary schools and colleges across England are closed except for children of critical workers and the most vulnerable, as one of our latest measures to slow the spread of the virus.
In response, the Chancellor has announced £4.6 billion in new lockdown grants to support business and protect jobs as the nation stays at home to control the virus, protect the NHS and save lives.
